one world among many…eleven stories about them all
What if Lincoln never became president, and the Civil War never took place? What if Columbus never discovered America, and the Inca developed a massive, technologicallyadvanced empire? What if magic was real and a half-faerie queen ruled England? What if an author discovered a book written by an alternate version of himself?
These are just some of the possible pathways that readers can take to explore the Other Earths that may be waiting just one page away.
